As in “RECONCILIATION”, also known as Political Reconciliation, which might be a possibility now.
Despite liberal defeatists like John Kerry, Chris Dodd, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and others parroting each other over and over again that the surge is a failure.
NAJAF, Iraq (Reuters) – Iraqi cleric Moqtada al-Sadr is ready to disband his militia if Shi’ite religious leaders demand it, his aides said on Monday, a surprising offer given renewed clashes between his fighters and security forces.
I guess his militia is getting its ass handed to it, and instead of being utterly crushed, he is saving face among his Shiite peers by “calling for peace and diplomacy” so he doesn’t become a political outcast once things calm down in Iraq.
The news came after Shi’ite Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, who launched a crackdown on Sadr’s Mehdi Army late last month, ordered the cleric to disband his militia or face exclusion from the Iraqi political process.
Black-masked Mehdi Army fighters have been principal actors in Iraq’s five-year-old war and the main foes of U.S. and Iraqi forces in widespread battles over recent weeks.
Yet another setback looms for the defeatist democrats and their plan to surrender.
